Gets the assignment's value.  If -to is specified, tries to get the assignment value on 
the given node, as long as the assignment targeted the node using it's -to field.  If -to
is not specified, the global value is returned (if any).  

If the assignment is not found, a Tcl error is produced.  If the assignment is found and 
the -dict option is given, a Tcl dict object is returned with the assignment 'name' (the 
given input), and the 'value' retrieved from the found assignment.  In addition, if the 
assignment has a 'to' or 'from' field, those fields will also exist in the returned dict.
